Good choice...and I'm a bit jealous that you got a plated kdx. I know I'd be able to ride more if mine was road legal. (Also, less snow would be nice)

Any chance of posting pictures? I've also got a 220 that I want to get plated. Does it have an upgraded stator?

interesting looking bike

im not a big fan of the blacked out look but I do enjoy a plated KDX so its all good

does it have the LED tail under the MX fender or are you looking for a stocker unit ?

Hi, if you are looking for a complete street legal kit look for the tusk KDX lighting kit. A little expensive but eventing you need is included as a kit. :supz:
